    Game Theory Idea: The Truth about The Plants In Plants and zombies, the real zombies! Basically to simplify, little simplification, the plants are the real zombies. They were created by a man named.. Crazy Dave. He gave himself a mental disorder and brain damage during an incident. He genetically modified plants, causing them to attack zombies. Or are they? They were created by a man named Mr. Zomboss, but in the comics, it’s found out there’s an entire school system for them to be trained it. He went there, and there there is multiple sentient, perfectly talking zombies. Meaning they aren’t zombies, zombies are know to eat people, and be mindless creatures. The zombies are the good guys here. They work to stop the plants. Before the plants turned evil, Dave teached the humans how to stop them, yet, the plants, when shooting them, let out their contagion of genetic spores and made them like the plants. But here’s the twist, they only look like that. They try to kill the plants still. They need to take out Dave cause he is the starting of the plants. They show intelligence. So there you have it, a possible game theory idea. If you ever do it, you can add anything to it.

    MatPat. When are you going to make a new Crow 64 theory? It’s been a while since the last one and I’m on the edge of my seat for more. You and your team of editors and other staff did a really good job on the first one. The episode gave me a lot of creeps and chills. I like how there are way too many elaborate codes to solve and I love the story. that’s why I need more! I need to know about the special place, the birthday, Manfred, what exactly happened to his daughter and what is up with those two scarecrows. You were able to solve most of the FNaF lore and you were able to decipher Petscop, Local 51, D.A.D, and other horror-related stuff. If anyone can solve this cryptic mystery then It’s you! I’ll be waiting for the next theory. I hope you read this. I love your content on all your Channels on youtube. And I’m so excited for the 10 year anniversary I’ve been a fan since the beginning. Can’t wait for the next theory. Your fan, Something, at 217

    "A game tester that's been brainwashed by a rogue piece of malware." And the fact that Jeremy is fully aware of someone trying to mind control him, trying to make him become a part of the cult, which the tape girl may or may not have been in under the same mysterious influence, is what gives Help Wanted a double meaning. At the surface, it's saying, "We're hiring Game Testers for a new game that's still in need of some finishing touches. Care to help us?" But going WAY deep into the game, deeper than usual, mind you, after discovering Glitchtrap, collecting all the cassette tapes scattered throughout the game, you'll find a very hideous truth to the story: One of the game developers decided to kill himself by ripping his face off because he was under the influence of some bad malware. Another beta tester was under the same control and was presumably following the malware's lead, but not entirely. She's reluctant. And she's having trouble deciding whether to keep granting the wishes of someone brainwashing her or betray said influence and die trying, causing her to lose her sanity. And it's getting worse everyday.

    I have done an worldbuilding exercise to make a realistic humanoid giant who stands 50 feet tall. Here’s some changes that they’d need: First, they would have a tapered, bottom-heavy body that allows them to be mobile, as well as having denser bones for their legs and spine, compared to the bones in the rest of their body. Second, their metabolic rate will be slower, and more akin to that of dinosaurs around the same size, due to more gradually losing heat. Third, they would have enlarged veins and a more complex circulatory system, including an second heart, in order to deliver nutrients and oxygen to and remove waste from their cells. Fourth, they have larger lungs with alveoli of the same size, but greater in number, and an extruded ribcage, so they can breathe properly. And fifth, long, thin fingers and toes to increase the base of support, and increase the surface area to volume ratio, helping with thermoregulation.
